    Contracts/Subcontracts Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alexandria, VA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Atkins (Alexandria, VA (US)).

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me on LinkedIn about a subcontracts manager positon. I politely told him the commute was too long and I wasn’t interested. He said telecommute was an option and asked me to send my resume. He followed up a couple of times and I did. Interviewed for subk position. They decided not to fill it but asked me to interview for a contracts manager postion. Recruiter called me and made a verbal offer for 20k less than the minimum I told them I would accept. Completely wasted my time after aggressively recruiting me for a job I didn’t apply for. Stay away.

    Traffic Operations Center Operator Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Atkins (Atlanta, GA (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Apply online, get selected to do an assessment based on multitasking, get invited to what's called an open house - it's a group activity, interview, then one-on-one interview.

    They give you a scenario to work on as a group and say it has no bearing on the interview process - no right or wrong. They have you introduce yourself and background. Then they have you do it again and they ask you questions. They give a tour. Then, they do one-on-one interviews with about 3 of their associates with some standard questions.

    If you get the job, they call; otherwise, they email you.

    They will not tell you why they declined you or why you didn't pass the interview. But the company hires unprofessionally dressed people so don't worry about dressing business casual.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about your previous supervisor. What could you have done to make relations with this supervisor better? Tell me about a time when you had a difficult customer.   Answer Question
